“is there a Doctor in the house that can answer these questions for me?”
From the footer of every page on GoutPal:
Information on GoutPal is provided by a gout patient to help you understand gout and related issues. Gout information is provided by a layman, with no medical training or qualifications. It should not be used for diagnosing or treating any health problem or disease. The information is given to help you understand your doctor’s advice and know what questions to ask. It is not a substitute for professional care. If you have an actual or suspected health problem, you should consult your doctor.
My role is to help people manage uric acid and gout safely. Primarily, I do this by helping people learn the right questions to ask their doctors. Then, I offer to help them understand their doctor’s responses. I also offer other levels of gout support. But, there is no substitute for a strong relationship with your doctor.
